Contact with Dr. Anselm Deninger head of Terahertz Technologies at TOPTICA and Abstract-Towards Quality Control in Pharmaceutical Packaging: Screening Folded Boxes for Package Inserts

My Note: I received the following email from Dr. Anselm Deninger, who is the Product Manager / Director of Terahertz Technologies at TOPTICA Photonics AG. I have linked the paper Dr. Deninger refers to below. Thank you Anselm, I appreciate hearing from the terahertz community, especially from a world leader in THz, such as yourself on behalf of TOPTICA!

Dear Randy,

A colleague has sent me the link to your blog. I must admit I had not been aware of it, but it is really a wonderful collection of links, clips and posts – great job!

Since the top headline of your blog explicitly mentions “process control”, I have taken the liberty of sending you a recent publication that we wrote in collaboration with scientists of Papiertechnische Stiftung, a German research institute focusing on the properties of paper. This is our first “terahertz application paper”, and if you find it interesting, feel free to include it in your pages. It is an open-access article, so there are no copyright restrictions to worry about.

If there is anything else related to terahertz in general, or the commercialization of the technology in particular, that I can help you with, then please do not hesitate to contact me.

Best regards from cloudy Munich,

Towards Quality Control in Pharmaceutical Packaging: Screening Folded Boxes for Package Inserts

S. Brinkmann, N. Vieweg, G. Gärtner, P. Plew, A. Deninger,

We applied a recently developed, ultrafast terahertz measurement technique to screen folded cardboard boxes for package inserts. The presence or absence of an enclosed leaflet could be detected unambiguously in samples moving at velocities up to 21 m/s and, depending on the sample, up to an area overlap of 50–60%. The simple, robust measurement setup may pave the way to new applications of terahertz technology for quality control in pharmaceutical packaging.
